RE: quattro-digest V3 #455

How does this work on the 89-on 100/200 models? The wiper stalk is a
more or less vertical piece of flattened plastic that moves up in
notches or down for a single quick swipe and moves in and out for spray
and rear wiper respectively. Where does that put an adjustment mechanism
(not a knob, then)?
